Finally Found Whats Wrong.now What?

i have had the symptoms for years but never noticed them until i had been  given iodine in the hospital my throat swelled up and has been swollen 4 a year and 1/2.i had so many problems just getting worse.i finally started researching my symptoms and found graves disease.just last week i went 2 the doctor and was diagnosed.the doctor said i waiting so long to be seen that i may have damaged my body.the thing that pushed me 2 go 2 the doctor was my hair is falling out,chest pain got worse,frequent bowel movements,body achy everywhere.it is really bad right now.i havent got my medicine yet and i am nervous to start taking it.i read some people saying that it made it alot worse.i just had a baby 4 months ago and had no idea that i had graves disease.it can be passed to the baby the doctor said so now he has to ghet tested.i feel horriable.my pregnancy was really hard and now i know why.i also have a 5 and 3 year old girls so you can only imagine how hard everything was for me.i am glad i found whats wrong and hopfully the medication will make me fell alot better.
